Mayfield University Abu Dhabi admissions, reviews, notes

Got something to say? Start a new topic in the Abu Dhabi universities forum

Mayfield University is an online university, similar to Hadley, Hillford, Willington universities marketed in Dubai. Mayfield appears to be marketed towards Abu Dhabi or UAE in general. Websites for all of them look the same with the same fees, program details etc.

Mayfield University website duplicate also at domain www.mayfielduniversity.net, with the same irritating popup ads.

Date established or opened, location, telephone contact details, owner's name, head's name, not supplied for any UAE location or presence. Website contact information appears to be for the USA, unknown if MU has a physical campus or is just online. Scholarships are advertised for UAE based students with up to 75% off normal fees. Degree courses take 1-2 years, but might be less than that according to some comments seen.

Validity of the qualification for UAE based companies and work permit applications is questionable. As with any online university without a physical presence in the UAE, MU is not accredited by the UAE Ministry of Higher Education, and degrees awarded by MU might not be accepted by the authorities in the UAE as valid. Check with the immigration department and-or a potential future employer whether MU degrees are recognized as an acceptable qualification.

For international or overseas students, as far as we know, MU is not accredited by any officially recognised accrediting agency. The accrediting bodies mentioned on their website are the same as or similar to many other online university accreditation organisations (the International Accreditation Organisation (IAO) for example) but they do not have official or government recognition.
